Welcome to The Padded Room
This blog is here to serve as your humble companion in your quest for a sense of wellness. In these posts, I’ll share the latest research paired with my psychological insights to help you gain a better understanding of yourself and the world around you.
I’m here to provide you with a science-backed, no bullshit approach to help you achieve long term growth and change.

Here, you’ll find a soft landing for life’s harshest truths.
Please feel free to explore. You can start with my most recent posts or, just below, you’ll find a list of categories that will allow you to sift through my blog based on your interests.
